What Services Do We Offer?

At Healthy School Food Collaborative (HSFC), we do more than simply help provide schools, businesses, and communities with healthy, nutritious food. While providing people with the food they need is one of our main priorities, we go above and beyond to help establish programs, provide management services, procure food, and even assist with nutrition consulting. We have 13 years in the business, and our goal is to provide people with the healthy food and habits they need to make good choices long-term.

With all of that being said, we are more than happy to help explain everything we have to offer. Continue reading below to learn more, and when you’re ready, reach out to our team to see how we can help you and your community!

Nutrition Consulting

Eating healthy foods is of the utmost importance. However, not everyone has access to healthy foods or even knows what goes into making a certain type of food “healthy.” Sure, fruits and veggies speak for themselves, but with so many labels throwing off our senses and buying foods that aren’t actually as healthy as they seem, nutrition counseling is a must.

At HSFC, we offer nutrition consulting to food service operators to not only help them provide better meals, but also learn more about the food we put into our bodies. The services we offer include:

  • Menu planning

  • Nutrition education and training

  • Federal meal programs nutrition compliance

  • Wellness program development and implementation

  • Procurement and vendor selection

School Food Authority

If your school wants to participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and Child and Adult Care Food Program(CACFP), you first need to apply to become a School Food Authority. Luckily, when you work with HSFC, we can help! We will work closely with your school or organization to ensure you not only have the support you need, but also the resources to make your program a success. We can help with everything from preparing and managing your application to helping you develop your school’s online child nutrition program.

Child and Adult Care

Mealtime is an important part of the day for both children and adults. However, not everyone has access to the right kind of food. It’s no secret that healthier food is more expensive than food that isn’t good for you. For this reason, we offer child and adult care programs that allow us to help daycare centers, after-school programs, and even adult care centers provide healthy, nutritious meals. We are dedicated to helping you gain access to free, nutritious meals that can help both children and adults get the food they need while also maintaining healthy dietary habits.

Food Program Management

While starting a program at your school or organization to offer healthy food sounds like something beneficial, not everyone has the means or the time to manage a program like that. At HSFC, we offer food program management services that take the responsibility of managing those programs off of your plate. We can help monitor and improve vendor performance, implement a POS system, submit and manage menu certification packets, and so much more. Just because you don’t have the time doesn’t mean you can’t offer healthy food — that’s where we jump in.

At Healthy School Food Collaborative, we work hard to ensure children and adults have access to healthy meals, as well as the resources to learn how to continue eating healthy long-term. Explore our website to learn more about our services, and reach out to us to get started today!
